Washington Sources (formally Groopspeak) is a news and opinion website that does not have an about page, author information, or funding disclosure. In the past, Washington Sources would frequently publish misinformation about former President Trump; however, at this time, they appear to have changed to a general news website.
Funded by /Ownership
Again, this source chooses not to disclose ownership or funding (red flag). The website appears to be funded by online advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, Washington Sources covers general news with an emphasis on entertainment news. Articles and headlines contain minimal emotional wording such as this The CDC Increases Booster Rollout And Approves Shot Mixing. Articles are usually properly sourced from credible media outlets.
Editorially, when covering politics, they typically do not add commentary and link to the original source, such as this Hillary Clinton’s 60 Minutes Interview In 1992 Caused Immense Regret For Many Involved. In general, the website is low biased but completely lacks transparency rendering it not credible.
Failed Fact Checks
- Washington Sources failed numerous fact-checks before 2018.
Overall, we rate Washington Sources Left-Center biased and questionable due to a complete lack of transparency and a history of failed fact checks in the past. (D. Van Zandt 5/20/2018) Updated (10/29/2022)
